My dog has broke its leg - can't make it to vet until week after next week - how many ibuprofen can I give him per day?

Update:

I'm not turnin him over to no shleter. He's my dog an he'll stay my dog. The bones certain broke - it were stuck out his leg but I pushed it back in and put a kerchief tight round it.

Update 2:

I got a little diamorphine I will give it to make it comfurble. No more ibuprofen since you folks seem to think it aint no good for a dog so it aint.

Update 3:

I hope Keerok I dunt needta shoot it but thanky for the advice Sir.

    How can you do that to the poor dog? You don't wait two weeks before you take a animal to the vet with a broken bone would you stay home with a broken leg for two weeks before you saw a doctor? If something is so important that you can't get to the vet then you don't deserve to have a pet

    Misrepresentation is a TOS violation that can get your account deactivated. Get therapy for your obsession with animal abuse.

    NEVER give ibuprofen, or any other human pain reliever. They cause serious liver and kidney damage that can be permanent.

    If that were a horse, you'd be putting a bullet to its head already.

    The dog won't last that long. Bring it to the vet now!

    NONE unless you WANT a DEAD DOG! Virtually all human pain medications are TOXIC for dogs.

    Get "CreditCare" or pawn something - but get the dog seen. It is a class ONE FELONY to withhold vet care to a sick or injured pet in all 50 states in the USA. You can also surrender the dog to the SPCA for care.

      Almost all states also make it illegal to neglect an animal.  It is NEGLECT not to provide vet care to a dog w/ a broken leg.

     It is not safe to give your dog any amount of aspirin, ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory meant for humans. Dog painkillers include carprofen, deracoxib, firocoxib and meloxicam, each of which can be prescribed by your vet.

    None. He needs a vet.. So find a way to afford it sooner or turn him over to a shelter or rescue
